This is a syndrome characterised by superomedial knee pain and a history of brief locking of the joint. It is caused by inflammation of the synovial fold above the medial meniscus.
Diagnosis requires arthroscopy, and it is treated with rest, NSAIDS, steroid injection or arthroscopic division of the synovial fold.
